Some of my favorite “footnotes to history.” Sorry, but I just had to come up with something to blog before people get on my case about not posting often enough. You probably know all of these and can come up with better additions to the list as well:
- Gavrilo Princep
- Roger Boisjoly
- Capt. Joseph Hazelton
- Presper Eckert (and John Mauchly)
- Crispus Attucks
- Capt. Edward Smith
- Caesar Rodney
- Philo Farnsworth
- Edwin Drake
- John Bardeen
- Franz Ferdinand
- Reginald Denny
- Harry Frazee

These are some of your favorite names? Is that the criterion?

Isn’t it kind of cheating to have both Gavrilo and Franz Ferdinand on the list?

maybe so, but Franz has a band named after him now, so I hold a special place in my heart for him.

You forgot Suppilulimas.
